Editorial Note Gender Mainstreaming in Development of Bangladesh
Keywords:Gender Mainstreaming, Development, Gender Studies, Women
This special issue explores and analyzes gender mainstreaming in the development of Bangladesh. The majority of the papers in this issue were presented at an international conference titled ‘Gender mainstreaming in Politics, Administration and Development in South Asiai and Beyond’ in Dhaka, Bangladesh in 2017. The papers in this special issue cover only a few studies from Bangladesh. Gender mainstreaming, which was introduced as a strategy for the promotion of gender equality by the Beijing Platform for Action in 1995, has received considerable global attention. However, many countries are facing numerous challenges in
implementing this concept, not only due to the lack of willingness of political and administrative leaders but also due to an issue of conceptual clarity.
